Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

A group of people put their hands together in a circle.
To cultivate an environment where all are provided the tools and opportunity to thrive – knowing they are included, valued, and understood.

United, we are Moore. Diversity of culture, talent and thought is key to a collaborative, innovative, and successful business. We are committed to fostering a workplace reflective of the communities we serve – one where employees feel empowered and encouraged to bring their authentic selves every day. Together, we will build an inclusive environment for all members of the Benjamin Moore community through equitable practices, transparency, and partnership.

In 2022, Benjamin Moore made significant progress towards our DE&I priorities of – education + awareness, increasing representation, and transparency. With a focus on building inclusive leadership skills at the highest levels, workshops and interactive learning labs were provided to our senior leadership team, directors, and vice presidents resulting in 100% participation in these offerings.

We continued to drive awareness by engaging outside speakers to provide insight into themes such as the disabled community and the experience of underrepresented women in the workplace. Culturally relevant content and resources were shared across the organization, and we celebrated what makes our employees unique with our first Cultural Appreciation Week.

Additional highlights include:
  • Expanded reach of job postings
  • Adoption of inclusive writing technology
  • Mental health solutions
  • Improvement in digital accessibility

Multi-Generational Talent

Our employees represent a cross-section of generations, bringing diverse thought, experience and passion for the brand and reaffirming our belief that culture, talent, and varying perspectives are critical to a collaborative, innovative, and successful business. The workforce is changing, and those changes are reflected in our population. Representation from the youngest generation in the workforce nearly doubled from 5% to 9% in 2022.

Business Resource Groups (BRG)

Listening to our employees is a key driver of our DE&I strategy. The overwhelming response was to learn and hear directly from colleagues in underrepresented groups. Our employees determined four Business Resource Groups (BRG)s that would benefit our organization today, with additional BRGs to be added in the future.

  • Women’s Empowerment Alliance (WEA) – a reimagined women’s group, the WEA is committed to building a workplace where all women – regardless of age, race or position – feel valued, seen, and supported.

  • Las RAÍCES – dedicated to providing a supportive environment for the Hispanic/Latinx community, offering opportunities for professional growth, insight into the market segment for business growth, and celebrations of cultural diversity.

  • PRISM – through education, awareness and support, the group is focused on bringing together the LGBTQIA+ community and allies to build a workplace where everyone belongs.

  • NextGen – with the purpose of bridging the gap between generations, our NextGen BRG is committed to helping create a sustainable future for the organization.

  • Diversity Advocacy Group (DAG) – comprised of employees with various backgrounds from across the company, the Diversity Advocacy Group assists in driving awareness, providing perspective, and leading advocacy efforts for diversity and inclusion for Benjamin Moore.

BRGs bring together more than 170 members of underrepresented groups and their allies around shared objectives, interests and experiences, as well as provide insight and perspective to help the company attract and develop the best talent, inspire innovation and enhance Benjamin Moore’s presence in the marketplace.
